“The unreal becomes real, fantasy becomes history, and the reader is thoroughly entertained by an unending parade of bafflements and surprises. This book is a complete delight.”
(K.W. Jeter author of Infernal Devices)
“"The Map of the Sky" keeps the reader guessing, checking and thinking, all the while providing many sidelights on the literary history of sci-fi itself.”
(The Wall Street Journal
“This story is much akin to what Orson Welles tried on Halloween, 1938, with his radio show. This time the saucers really fly. All this, simmered in a rich broth of keen imagination, exceptional narrative control, wit, and an obvious affection for sci-fi and adventure stories and with great respect for the readers of same. Cool factor: 3-D end papers. Glasses included with first editions only.”
"A cross-genre masterpiece"
